Does anyone know if it's ok to use those plug in mosquito repellent things in a baby's room? ds is 11 months and we're off to italian coast beg. July so mozzie factor quite high I think. Also is it safe/ worth it to get spray on repellent?
I DID WITH DS WHO WAS 8 WEEKS- DO YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T CHECK IF IT WAS OK! I WASO WORRIED ABOUT HIM GETTING BITTEN THAT I FORGOT ABOUT THAT! I DID USE A GREAT HERBAL INSECT REPELLANT- ALTHOUGH ALL THE LOCALS USED A PARTICULAR AVON PRODUCT- WHICH ALTOUGH NOT DESIGNED TO REPELL THEM APPARENTLY DOES SO BRILLIANTLY- BUT SORRY FORGOTEN IT'S NAME!
Toria, I have friends who also swear by Avon Skin So SOft lotion. Apparently, the US army ordered gallons of the stuff once. I googled "Avon mosquito repellant" & found loads of people recommending it!
We always use a plug in thing on holiday, and again never considered it may be a risk for the littlies. However, they did not sleep right next to it. We used to stay in a mobile home & left it in the lounge area.
